Our library book + book lists were such a hit last month, and we are so excited about this month’s lists featuring darling autumn and pumpkin books for preschoolers and early elementary children. Each book list comes with a list of quality books for ages 2-6, plus a list of engaging activities that incorporate the theme. Each list also includes simple activity ideas for tying in a little bit of art, music, and nature into your child’s day.
I love reading seasonal books with my little ones as it really helps them make connections with what they are seeing and doing. They really start noticing the details more and get so excited when they read about something they’ve done in a book!
These autumn and pumpkin books are perfect as you head to the pumpkin patch or just enjoy the falling leaves at the park. The activity ideas we’ve provided are simple — ranging from things you can do at home or on a walk in your neighborhood — and don’t require a lot of pre-planning. Mainly, these activities will engage and enrich your children’s minds without a screen!
Moms use our lists for:
- Screen-free activity ideas
- A home-based preschool curriculum (we show you how to incorporate gross and fine motor skill activities!)
- Days when child has to stay home for quarantine or COVID exposure
- A resource for starting a home library of quality books
- Ideas for play groups and play dates
The books on our lists were thoughtfully chosen for their sweet and engaging story lines, richer language and/or beautiful illustrations. You won’t find the seasonal commercialized, cartoonish books you often see on the store end caps on these lists! Every one of these books is special and many of them are classic so you might not have heard of them before! You can find on Amazon or at your local library.
Remember, we have lots of free book suggestions on DoSayGive but these book-based activity lists were created to help take the guess work out of going to the library by making it easy for moms to have a list of quality books and activities within a specific theme. We think they are very unique compared to other preschool lists on the web and hope you enjoy them as a family for years to come!
An added bonus? These lists are cute to print out to give to a classmate along with one of the books — what a great and affordable gift for fall!
You can click directly below to purchase, and you can choose from one of the lists or both for just $10. The lists download immediately.
And don’t forget you can still grab our apple- and farm-themed lists from last month, too.
